I have always enjoyed stories. I have been an avid reader for as long as I can remember. I was read to at a very early age.
I enjoy interviewing people and learning their stories.
I enjoy listening as people share their stories.
The phrase "The Story Collector" all of a sudden came to my mind this past week. This is part of what I want my future to be....I want to be a story collector.
We can learn so much from each other's stories. Hearing other's stories can change our world view.
I learned a lot about story from author Madeleine L'Engle. Here is one of my favorite quotes:
All stories have merit.
I want to be a story collector. I want to collect stories and share them with others, and make an impact on people's lives.
Everyone's story is important. Everyone's story needs to be heard.
And I want to be a part of that process.
